S4S: April 26th

AsosDenimOverallDress

I can always count on Who What Wear for some Sunday Style inspiration. Today’s breaking Style story: the adorably versatile overall dress I’m sighing for. If you keep up with Trendy Tuesday, you’ll know this pinafore is not only adorable, it’s also right on trend. Though it’s hard to know how long trends may last, this piece has the advantage of working for more than one season. You can wear it with a simple tee and sandals in the spring and summer, and even keep the piece through fall by warming it up with leggings, boots, and a fitted turtleneck. With affordable options being offered by retailers like Asos and Topshop, there are endless opportunities to rock this too-cute trend.

TopShopDenimDressIt’s simple. It’s stylish. It’s denim. The often overlooked fabric is reinventing itself this Spring, appearing in all shapes and silhouettes. The playful take on the utilitarian fabric allows denim clothing to maintain its practicality while still being stylish. Not to mention the automatic 70s glam it lends to an everyday outfit, denim gives us that effortless chicness we all crave.Anais Ortiz signature   Image via Nordstrom

LanvinVelvetDress

In my opinion, holiday parties have always been incomplete without a knockout velvet dress. That’s why I’m sighing for this velvet (and metallic!) Lanvin dress. Complete with an adorable bow, the beautifully ruched dress is the epitome of holiday elegance. For some budget-friendly options, make sure to check out retailers like Topshop and Asos.

Suit Yourself

If life is a beach then why don’t we spend more time picking out the right bikini? Summer may be ending soon, but bikini season is never over. You never know when  your bikini ready-or-not bod will be making its next yearly debut, it could be as early as January if you’re lucky! Investing in the right bathing suit now means getting the chance to test it out before summer is over–and it means you’re prepared for that last-minute winter vacation to Cabo. But how could a post-holiday body ever be beach-ready? Read on to find out which suits suit year-round.

 

1. Blessed with a Bottom

So you’re a little bottom-heavy, there’s nothing wrong that! Balance it out with a more distracting top like this one to create the illusion of an equally full chest. To create longer-looking legs, choose bikini bottoms with a higher cut leg and tie the sides on a string bikini closer to the front to trim inches off your hips in an instant.

 

2. Bountiful Bust

A bigger bust calls for more coverage, seek bikini tops like this one in your cup size to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. For comfort and support, choose suits with wider straps in spandex, which lasts longer and doesn’t stretch out like nylon. Find a matching bottom with a frill or two to draw attention away from the chest.

 

3. Tummy Trouble

“Getting ready for bikini season” is so overrated–there’s too much delicious food in the world! Good thing there’s a swimsuit for that. There’s no shortage of cute one-pieces these days, picking one like this raises the bust line to elongate the torso and hides the tummy with ruching and draping. If you still prefer bikinis, go with the high-rise retro look to suck in the stomach and pair it with an eye-catching top.

 

Now that you know which suit suits you, don’t be afraid to make a splash!
